Budgie Desktop Features

Budgie Menu

The Budgie desktop environment offers an intuitive menu that enables quick access to your installed programs, offering both category and compact views.


Budgie ships with an applet, notification and customization center referred to as Raven.

Raven enables you to:

Easily access calendar information, sound volume, media player controls, and more via Applets view.
Manage incoming application and system notifications via Notifications view
Customize your Budgie and system experience by enabling you to:
Toggle system-wide Dark theme.
Change GTK and icon theming
Add, remove, and modify Budgie panels, their properties as well as their displayed applets.
Obtain quick access to system settings and power options such as restart, suspend, and shutdown.

Customizable. Extensible.

Customizing your desktop has never been simpler. Right from Raven, you are able to change your widget theme, icon theme, global dark theming, as well as in-depth modification to panels.

With the Panel settings section, you can choose where the panel and its inner applets are located, as well as granular control over individual applet settings.
